Description: "My favourite film of the last decade"

—Anurag Kashyap

When Subramaniyapuram was released in 2008, it cut through the ostentatious glitz of mainstream Indian cinema like a machete. A tale of friendship, betrayal, love and revenge set in Madurai in the early 1980s, the film pioneered a new, gritty aesthetic in Tamil movies that caught the attention of film lovers around the world. Made on a tiny budget by a first-time director and a cast of newcomers, Subramaniyapuram was a smash hit with audiences all over South India—from the big cities to the villages—and has been cited as a major influence by some of India’s most respected filmmakers.

This edition includes:

  • A gripping English translation of the screenplay

  • Galleries of full-colour film stills and posters

  • Never-before-seen photos from the shooting of the film

  • Essays by Preminda Jacob, Constantine Nakassis, Anand Pandian, and Baradwaj Rangan on the film’s cinematic context and social impact

  • A wide-ranging interview with director M. Sasikumar on the process of making the film and its historical and cultural significance
